The reason for this department arises directly from the vocation of La Salle and Christian humanism, with the conviction that the vocational training of young people has to be essentially articulated with the integral formation of the person. The performance of the Department unfolds in the two main areas of university dynamics: teaching and research.

Its purposes are:

• Promote humanistic values in all students of La Salle Campus Barcelona.

• Define and update Lasallian pedagogy at La Salle Campus Barcelona.

• Train the professors of La Salle Campus Barcelona in these transversal dimensions (humanistic and pedagogical).

• Collaborate, in these areas, with the Lasallian educational community, and make proposals open to society.
